Tick Problem Here On Long Island
Long Island and more particularly the east end of Long island like the Hamptons and surrounding areas are some of the worst areas in the country for the spread of and incidents of tick and mosquito borne diseases such as Lyme disease and Encephalitis. The deer tick is the main culprit and the disease is spread to the tick from mice NOT deer, although they call it the deer tick giving a false impression of origination. There are several other tick borne diseases worth mentioning, those being Babesiosis and Ehrlichiosis. Both of these come with their own specific set of mild to severe symptoms and can be life threatening like Lyme Disease. Mosquitos can spread diseases as well like the now emerging Zika virus.
The East end of Long Island is a very special area and unique in so many ways with its pristine environment and local feel to our communities.
